All,

I need to put authentication into my app, but I also need to integrate
with a pre-existing user/password table.

Can I use acts_as_authenticated or does that only work with a specific
schema?

I'm thinking I'll just modify the authentication recipe in _Rails
Recipes_ to meet my needs.

Any other advice?

Thanks,
Wes
